Problems facing Slaves after the Civil War once they were freed:

1. They did not own land and didn't have money to buy land.

2.  They had no education so were unable to do any job except fields, cleaning, cooking, and taking care of animals...etc.

3.  They were not allowed to vote.

4.  Difficult to earn a living, because the slave owners did not have enough money to pay for the labor they had gotten for free.
